Hear …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead’s New Single “A Million Random Digits”

It’s been a while since we’ve gotten news from rock act …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, but the band have been hard at work. Their newest record, IX, drops October 20 (pre-orders ongoing here). To celebrate the upcoming release, they’re streaming single “A Million Random Digits” now on Line of Best Fit.

The song is a quick three minutes with primal drums making way for dark guitar riffs. If they’re saying anything, it’s that they’re coming back with teeth growling, per usual. According to the band, the track title comes from a stolen …

Song Of The Day: Big K.R.I.T. – “Cadillactica”

Holy shit. We have a hit on our hands.

Big K.R.I.T. has been teasing the release of Cadillactica for the majority of 2014, and early this morning we finally learned when that highly-anticipated record will arrive in stores.

Set for a November 11 release, Cadillactica will almost certainly be one of the most discussed hip-hop releases of the year. K.R.I.T. topped many ‘best of’ lists in 2013, so all eyes are on the young emcee to prove his staying power in this incredibly fickle industry. To get fans hyped, the record’s title track has been made available for streaming, and …

Slipknot Stream “XIX”

“This song is not for the living. This song is for the dead.”

“XIX,” otherwise known as the opening track off Slipknot‘s highly-anticipated new album, has appeared online ahead of the record’s late October release. The track begins with a soft spoken Corey Taylor uttering the phrase above before transitioning into an acoustic-driven track that finds Taylor belting about how disconnected he feels from everything around him. He’s broken, alone, and contrary to what you might hear he is not doing well. He wants you to join him, and in many ways “XIX” serves as his call to arms. …

Bobby Shmurda Responds To Haters With “Bobby Bitch”

Bobby Shmurda came out of nowhere over the summer and quickly climbed urban music charts with his hit track, “Hot Nigga.” The song rose to popularity so fast that labels and blogs alike quickly hopped on the young emcee’s bandwagon, but after months passed with no follow-up many began to wonder whether or not Bobby could repeat his flash in the pan success.

The jury may still be out on the longevity of Bobby Shmurda’s career, but today the New York native fired back at haters with a new track titled “Bobby Bitch.” The song borrows heavily from …

Trophy Eyes Stream “White Curtains”

Australian pop-punk/melodic hardcore wunderkinds Trophy Eyes have unveiled yet another track from their upcoming Hopeless Records debut full-length, Mend, Move On.

The track “White Curtains” is an absolute banger that packs a rather weighty emotional punch over its 3:03 running time as the band’s unique brand of pop-punk infused melodic-hardcore provides the perfect backdrop for vocalist John Floreani‘s desperate delivery as he recounts a deeply personal manner with unashamed honesty. The result is a track that has you feeling every syllable of his impassioned refrains as he screams “Torn between, being a child my whole life, or the man …

BadBadNotGood Release New Single “Velvet”

Canadian hip-hop-infused jazz trio Badbadnotgood released their third LP, III, earlier this year, and now they’re back with a new single titled “Velvet.” Last we heard from them, they were playing alongside Ghostface Killah and Danny Brown on “Six Degrees,” but this sees a quieter side of the group.

If your day is off to a rough start, relax. “Velvet” sees the three sprucing things up with delicate piano solos and steady jazz drumming that’s quick to mellow you out. There’s a little saxophone partway through that gets rowdy, but other than that it’s a smooth trip …

Listen to Charli XCX’s New Song “London Queen”

If British singer, songwriter, and all around badass Charli XCX moving her new album’s release date back to December 16 has you down (or even later for you UK folks), fear no more. The highly-anticipated sophomore album, Suckernow has a new single for fans to play on repeat until the holidays: “London Queen.”

The single rides on a punk bass line and peppy rhythm, teasing relations to the Ramones with several shouts of “oy” while she sings about her move to LA from the UK. There’s a huge fist-pumping chorus and endless rebellious angst, but its roots are …

Alex G

Stream Aleg G’s New Single “Hollow”

There are some genres so flooded with artists that it’s hard to decide what actually stands out from the rest. This year, the sappy singer-songwriter trope has been given a diamond in the pile and there’s no denying he’s as talented as he sounds. Pennsylvania native Alex Giannascoli, or better known as Alex G, pens that wobbling acoustic melody that makes you struggle to realize what’s the bigger emotion inside of you: nostalgic happiness or despondent sadness. He knows what he’s doing, and if he keeps it up, he could be this generation’s Elliott Smith.

The 21-year-old is still attending …

Oh, Be Clever Stream New Single, “My Chest”

Yesterday, SLC-based electronic duo Oh, Be Clever premiered a brand new track entitled “My Chest,” which takes a slightly more poignant, dream-pop approach that serves as a faint departure from their usual brand of upbeat, electronic, indie-pop.

Still full of infectious, anthemic vibes, “My Chest” builds and soars with layers of synth and emotional lyrics provided by Brittney Shields’ powerfully emotive vocal delivery. The singer explains, “‘My Chest’ is a really close song to me. Personally I have a really hard time vocalizing vulnerability or the fear of liking someone too much. I’m always afraid I’ll freak them out or …

Joey Badass

Hear Two New Joey Bada$$ Singles “Get Paid” and “Christ Conscious”

Hip hop is getting some sharp songs today. Brooklyn MC Joey Bada$$ is on the brink of dropping his debut LP, B4.DA.$$, that’s already given us a peak of his upcoming official sound with “Big Dusty.” Now we’re getting a look farther into the record with outtake “Get Paid” and lead single “Christ Conscious.”

The raucous “Get Paid” sees Joey Bada$$ laying down the law and nailing his usual lines. The fact that this got cut from the record sets the bar pretty high for what will stay in the tracklist. Now that “Christ Conscious” is in our …

Hoodie Allen Shares “Numbers” And People Just Keep Talking

Hoodie Allen is under two weeks away from the release of People Keep Talking, and earlier this week he decided to share another track from the album with fans.

We have been talking about Hoodie’s new record a lot in recent weeks, but to be honest we are a few days late with this post. Hoodie even called us out about it. Still, I have been surprised by every People Keep Talking track the Long Island native has delivered, and his latest is no different. The song boasts a chill beat and laid back production that provides ample room …

Listen to an Electrifying Cover of The White Stripes’ “Fell In Love With a Girl,” as Performed by Frameworks

Frameworks are only a few months into their album cycle for their Topshelf Records debut, Loom, and they’re already beginning to pump out more material–albeit a cover song for charity.

The Gainesville, FL band have tag-teamed with The Saddest Landscape to release a split covers EP on October 7 through Soft Speak Records, but their collaboration does not end at that. This release cleanly coincides with their week-long tour across Europe that kicks off on October 10.

Follow the jump to get a look at the tour dates and to stream Frameworks’ cover of “Fell In Love With …
